Lectotype. Male. INDONESIA: Papua: 1.14S, 134.01E Hatam, lectotype male of Luciola microthorax   designated by Ballantyne (1987a) ( MCSN). GoogleMaps  

Diagnosis. 6.0 mm long; pronotum and MP dingy yellow, MS dark brown; deflexed elytral apex rounded; distinguished by the bilobed PLP ( Ballantyne 1987a Fig. 5a, b, c View FIGURES 3–5 ).

Remarks. Olivier (1885) named the species for the small size of its pronotum, and Ballantyne and McLean (1970) adopted an E/P index (ratio of elytral width measured across bases to pronotal width) in an attempt to characterise it. The use of this index has been discontinued; microthorax   is amply characterised by features of its terminal abdomen. Helgen et al. (2008) indicated Hatam is a village in the Arfak Mountains of the Vogelkop peninsula.
